It has a specific meaning and it's already described in the section you quoted.
 Perhaps a new paragraph that expands on the paranthetical, copied to the
glossary would help.

I don't think there's an implication that only 1 URL leads to the directory,
it's implicitly in the context of the request being processed.  Prefix here
refers to the splitting of the URL by mod_rewrite prior to the evaluation of
rules that will match against the part of the URL not already "consumed" by
leading to the htaccess file.
